DaPoPo Theatre is seeking 2-3 actors, as well as an artist/technician/designer, who would be available to collaborate on an exciting theatre performance (A Wake For Lost Time) with some of this year’s guest artists (members of [elephants] collective) who we are delighted to welcome as part of the DaPoPo Live-In Festival 2016: Working Together.

Applicants must be available for rehearsals the week of Oct 16 - 20th, as well as a 24-hour performance from Oct 21 - 22nd. In addition, they will be expected to train and build content in preparation to rehearsals. There will be some compensation (minimum: profit share).

It is important to note that "A Wake For Lost Time" is an unusually physically demanding piece, both in terms of the content of the production (choreography and physical action) and the rigour of performing it for 24 hours straight. [elephants] collective is first and foremost committed to actor safety, and in-turn it is important that we highlight this to all prospective applicants.

We are particularly interested in artists who identify as members of marginalized or racialized  communities including, but not limited to, artists of colour; women; and artists over 30.

Applicants will have an opportunity to “meet” with the artists from [elephants] collective via “Skype”.

This is an amazing opportunity for local artists to collaborate with these exciting and inspiring artists. Upon expression of interest, DaPoPo will also be glad to supply a Company History and Project Description.

For more information or to express interest, please contact us at If possible, please include a short bio, headshot, and/or resumé. If this does not interest you, but you know of someone who might enjoy this unique opportunity, please help us by forwarding this announcement.

Submission Deadline: Friday, August 26th
